This book (Practical Electron Microscopy and Database) is a reference for TEM and SEM students, operators, engineers, technicians, managers, and researchers.

=================================================================================
The periodic potential in crystals causes the amplitude of the accelerating electron (e.g. 200 keV in TEM) to be transferred backandforth between the transmitted and diffracted wavefunctions. This transfer process can be explained by dynamical theory. The crystal has a periodic potential that is weak compared with an electron energy of 200 keV.
Table 4135 shows that electrons interact with 1 electron, many electrons, 1 nucleus, and many nuclei in solids.
